Head on over to Midnight Madness for our BIG DANCE PARTY week!

We sent out the invitations, we teased you with our comments, and now it is time to “Get Down and Party” with the Midnight Madness girls. All week long the party is going on so keep checking back as we will be changing it up. We are going to be having so much fun and hope you will be joining us.
OK-this is what I am wearing to the party. haha This is me in Louisville Kentucky for a National Square Dance Convention back int 19XX haha-I am not telling you!!! I was looking for my head banger ball picture and came across this one......I made this dress. This is the actual "Convention" dress.

It will be an exciting week of activities and we need you to help with our celebration. You may not want to leave the party!!! We will be having door prizes from the comment section in addition to our regular drawings for each of the activities we post. The only requirement is that you have played "ONE" of our challenges in the past
year and post your comment. That's it!! You’ll want to log onto the Midnight Madness Blog, grab your crafting supplies, and party with us each day for a chance to win.
If you are new, just join us for MMSC53!

A corner punch for the fancy corners that I slipped my paper into
Martha Stewart Deep Eyelet Punch

Priscilla said...

Ok, should I comment on the card or your dress picture first?? I think I will start with the dress.. number one, you look adorable and number two I can't believe you made that. You don't even look like you are out of high school..was that a class project or something..LOL Just joking. Now to your super cute card. We know you love bears, so we expected a bear image from you right? ;) Your colors look wonderful and those flowers..OH those flowers are sooooooooo perfect. I bet you made the card to match the flowers just so you could use them huh?

Jeni C Slack (^0^) said...
